    Actual information 23-03-29 :

    Hi there :-) Welcome to our project!

    Whenever there are questions left after reading our profile please ask!
    I normally mean what I say or write and in my experience it helps a lot not being too shy or too polite for clarity so feel free for that!

    We are working on rendering with clay at the moment and afterwards we have to build the floors in my moms flat. My mom wants to move in as soon as it is possible, but there is still a lot to do to get her rooms ready. At the moment she uses a guest room when she comes here, but she needs to have her own space soon.

    What else:

    There is refurbishing old stairs and doors.
    Cutting firewood and piling it up for the next winter has to be done as well.
    And the garden season just began so there is a lot to do in the vegetable garden. Of course the flowers and young fruit trees and hedges need some time as well :-)

    I am happy if you have skills in crafts but a lot of that work can be done without much experience if you just know how to use your hands and your brain :-)
    All of it is physical work so you should be quite fit.


    Hello! We are Heike (50) and my mom Annette (75) and we are starting a community place :-) The cat catching the mice here is Mona and the dog protecting us is Rocco :-)
    Come and help us with reconstruction/redevelopment of our half-timbered manor, a historical monument of 1835, to create a vivid and peaceful place for a community with social and ecological values. As we are still at beginning of this project - we started in May 2019 - and the manor stood empty for many, many years, there are a lot of different tasks to do within a lot of building work, of course ;-)
    At the moment it is just me, my cat and my dog Rocco living here permanently. My mother is coming over every now and then and she is planning on moving in as soon as possible, we are working hard on that, but her little flat is still under construction and the prices for everything are rising and rising, so we have to find a solution to get it ready with what we got ;-)
    We use ecological materials, work with wood and clay and cooperate with the office for the preservation of historical monuments.
    I am open for a good, honest and open minded relation in which we can support each other and I am happy to host you for a week or some months :-)
    You can come with your own camper van as well of course and place it in the big garden where you can see the sunrise and listen to the animals of the forest at night :-)
    Be aware that internet access is only via satellite, it works but not always good. You can use wifi but for online courses or zoom meetings it is normally not quick enough. We are waiting for a connection since two years now but it has not arrived here so far... Maybe in summer or autumn they say...

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I can support with learning german if that's something you would like to improve.
    You can learn about reconstruction of an old manor made of old and therefore natural materials like clay and wood and linseedoil and so...
    I started gardening with effectice microorganisms what is really astonishing, so you can learn about and try that.
    I like to share knowledge and experiences. I love self-development, meditation and mindfulness. I am interested in natural and energetic healing. And having fun together - of course!
    Sitting at the camp-fire in the end of a day makes me happy beyond wishes and that's something I'd love to share with you.

    You can help with the reconstruction of the monument-protected half-timbered manor and there are the garden tasks as well:

    Lots of small or bigger repair jobs awaiting for you if you are good at that kind of thing.
    The season for gardening has just begun and there is a lot to do in the vegetable garden.
    There are trees that need cutting because they grew aside the house.
    There is firewood that has to be cut and chopped and piled up for the next winter.

    I ask for 4-5 hours at 5 days from Monday to Friday.
    Just in case you are a skilled carpenter or skilled in other crafts I need let's talk about a fair solution for both of us.

    There is a little workshop I would like to "rescue" from falling apart, the roof needs fixing after carpentry work.
    It could become a great place for guests once it is ready and I would love to have support with ideas and work :-) You can find it in the pictures.

    There is a caravan/trailer in the garden suitable for one or two people, if you . We have a small and simple guest room in an outbuilding and still working on the rooms inside. Of course you can come with your own camper van and place it in the garden.
    We share the bathroom, toilet and kitchen and there is a living room with a woodburner and a piano and a guitar.
    The food I offer is mostly from ecological farming and I am lactose-intolerant.
    Mostly I eat vegetarian, sometimes I eat meat, but no mass production at all and I hosted vegan travelers and learned about vegan cooking some bacics, but anyway vegans normally know how to cook a vegan meal :-)

    I do smoke, but of course outside and the guests are asked to go out for smoking as well.

    I work parttime in my homeoffice and have my room upstairs.

    Autres infos...

    Nature is wonderful out here, there are owls, rabbits, deers, bats and birds around and there is a forest and a little stream nearby. There are historical monuments and some museums in this rural area. In 5 km there is a lake suitable for swimming and also not to forget the river Weser with its cycle path some km's away. Public transport is quite poor but you can lend a bike. It is 5 km to the station in Lahde, where I can pick you up.
